Whenever filmmakers select a popular subject like Pakistani cricketer turned politician Imran Khan, they should know that the expectations of the masses would be sky high.
These days when films like Seedling (Lamha) and Waar have changed the trend and introduced some new standards in Pakistani film industry, the upcoming movies should be good enough to compete.
Kaptaan Theatrical Trailer:
Imran Khan is certainly the most popular national hero alive today in Pakistan. He won the first and only Cricket World Cup for Pakistan in 1992, started and completed major projects like Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre in Lahore after his mother. He is currently on a mission to clean up Pakistan with his political party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf.
The film is all about the struggle of Kaptaan ( Imran khan) in doing some of the most unattainable missions.
Kaptaan and his party are completely supporting the movie, while on the other hand there are some critics also, who were criticizing the filmmaker and raised questions about poor planning and execution. The support to the movie by PTI has also given oxygen to some questions as if Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf is endorsing the movie?. PTI‘s secretary of information Shafqat Mehmood replied to these rumors and said that there has been no collaboration or funds extended to the film-makers. “I can totally deny this,” Mehmood said.
